Two Broke Watch Snobs
Ah happy to shed more light! Mike and I started the idea of a watchfast specifically for those who felt like their buying habits were out of control. In a sense it’s a measure of mindfulness within watch collecting that we encourage.
When it first started we were both super jaded to all the new releases and constant marketing trying to get us to spend money on watches. We lost sight of the fact that our current collection was still awesome and made us happy. But we needed to give ourselves the opportunity to properly see that - so the watchfast forced us to confront how happy our current collection made us by choosing one Watch to stay on the wrist for a month. It’s not for everyone tbh - only for those who essentially need a watch collecting rat race detox. Hope that insight is helpful!
Not sure how doing this would be a horological detox to prevent new purchases, but then again I'm pretty much a hoarder so what do I know?
